Ty's Southern Life Blog
Calling all college freshmen! Hey girls! Are you rushing in the fall, or thinking about it? From my personal experience, the week of sorority recruitment can be a hectic one if you are not prepared. There are many rounds, each focusing on a different aspect of the chapter's values.
Here are some outfits to help you through Rush Week, to keep you feeling your most confident, and to get you ahead of the crowd!
The usual schedule of Formal Fall Recruitment goes like this:
Night 1: Go Greek Round
This round is a littel more casual. I would suggest wearing a cute pair of shorts and a t-shirt representing your University or a nice, casual top. Here are 2 shorts options that would be perfect!
Night 2: Philanthropy Round
This round is more formal than the first, but you can still get away with a casual sundress or dress you would wear to church. These are good options:
Night 3: Sisterhood Round
This round focuses on what is really important to each chapter as seen through the love and support that is shown through their sisters. For this night, I would opt for a solid colored dress and heels.
Night 4: Preference Round
The biggest night! This is the day that you really narrow down what sororities that you believe are the best fit for you. It can be hard to prioritize your options. The sororities also have a hard time choosing which girls to keep who chose them - it's important to ensure you look very nice to show your utmost respect for the chapter's you attend.
Here are some nice options:
(I love this blue Fit and Flare dress. This is what I would pick!)
Final Day: Bid Day!
This is the big day! The day you discover what sisterhood you are in! Your University will supply you with a Panhellenic Bid Day T-shirt. You will wear that and any shorts you want! Most people go for cut-offs or cute fabric shorts.
Well there you go! An entire Formal Fall Recruitment round-up!
Remember, the most important thing is not what you wear - but how you stay true to yourself. Do that and you are sure to find your forever sisterhood. If dressing your best helps you make feel more confidently you, come by Ty Alexander's! All of these options are avaiable in store or online (just click the picture).
Try and tell us you don't love dresses that have hidden pockets. It's like a little surprise that makes your day better every time you remember it. Good news! We just got stocked up on dresses with those cute little pockets! Take a look!
This blue and pink chevron pattern makes this dress too cute. The high neckline and above-the-knee cut can be perfectly accenuated with a long necklace and some wedges or flats.
Another adorable high-neck line dress! I like this one the most. The cool colors really help balance out the heat of summer we have currently had! The pockets are perfect and sturdy enough to hold your iPhone and keys!
I love this dress! It has such a breezy feel and the tye-dye screams summer. Check out those pockets! I'm telling you... it doesn't get more adorable than this. The monogram necklace, which are fully stocked in store!, is perfect.
Welcome back! We hope you're flying through this week after the extra long Memorial Day weekend! Today, we are going to be sharing some of our favorite stops & outfits for a Girls' Day Out in the #TAJeep.
You know we had to prepare for group shots, so these slightly color corridinated tops were perfect! Lauren looks so cute and ready for summer in her printed Sleeveless Taupe Top. I picked a pink Short Sleeve Cut Out Top that I thought was casual but intricate.
Everyone thinks Lawrenceburg is such a tiny town, but when it comes down to it, there is so much to do! Here are our favorite things to do in the summer out with girlfriends:
- Stop by Chillie Willie's for some yummy, cheap shaved ice and great customer service!
- Head out to David Crockett State Park for a beautiful drive in the jeep
- Go grab lunch! Our top restaurant picks: Bliss Cafe, Sue Sue's Sandwich Shop, and the Brass Lantern
- Run by the local ballpark to catch a Baseball game
- Last, but definitely not least, go to Ty Alexander's to shop and re-stock on our favorite summer pieces!
Do you have a jeep? Where do y'all love to stop on your Girls' Day Out?
Calling all Seniors of the Class of 2017! We are SO excited for you to begin this journey into your senior year! High school goes by faster than you think, doesn't it? Your senior pictures are probably just around the corner, and your TA Staff remembers how stressful it was having to pick out those 5 outfits that everyone would see!

These dresses are all simply adorable. With their light colors and soft details, they'll be sure to make your senior pictures flattering. You don't want something that is too busy, and these four dresses have the perfect vibe to them.
This top is one of out favorite basics for Senior Pictures! Pair it with distressed or colored jeans for a perfect look! Add a flower bouquet from your local Lawrenceburg Florist to add a beautiful prop to your photos!
These tops are my favorite picks for senior pictures! The best part about wearing any of these tops in your senior pictures is, again, the details. The adorable trims, tassels, and ruffles can make your outfit complete without making your pictures too busy.
